COMMUNITY MISSION OUTREACH:
"End 68 Hours of Hunger" Exeter program provides school children (SAU 16) with backpacks with food for weekend meals. 
This local program is currently filling 83 backpacks a week!   
 During the month of May & June we collected cans of tuna!   
Thank you for your continued generosity to support
this wonderful community outreach!    
During the summer months, End 68 Hours of Hunger does not take food collections, but they encourage folks to donate food items for the children to  St. Vincent dePaul Food Pantry in Exeter.       
Did you know? 
 In 2018 there were 374 visits to the food pantry by families with school     
 aged children.  Food distributed the equivalent of 33,386 meals during the   
    Summer Family Food Program. 
       Thank you for your continued support!
